Suspicious Illinois nursing home death reported

According to the Chicago Tribune, last week, a 57 year old Illinois man died at the Fox River Pavilion nursing home in Aurora. A Saturday autopsy was inconclusive, so authorities say that they will have to wait for toxicology results. Illinois police said over the weekend that the 57 year old man had no signs or personal injuries that would explain his death at the time. The nursing home death occurred Thursday evening after getting into a physical altercation with his Illinois nursing home roommate. Police have described the Illinois nursing home death as “suspicious.” The man who was involved in the physical altercation with the 57 year old victim was questioned by police and subsequently released. The results of the toxicology tests will take three to four weeks. The Kane County coroner must wait for those results to determine a cause of death for the Illinois man. Prosecutors will also wait for toxicology results to decide whether or not charges against anyone should be pursued.
